Boys' navy long sleeve shirt, grey striped linen blend waistcoat and tie set.

Would lie well with a grey or black suit. The buttons are well aligned unlike what some other review said. It also came with a cool black bow tie to complete the look. See All Buying Options. I was specifically looking for a vest that had the same material on the back unlike some vests that had the slick material on the back. Surprisingly heavy for its size. I mainly wanted a vest that was slim-fitting to wear during cold weather that was fashionable.

This one fits the bill. My only complaint is the pattern of the vest doesn't match a lot of my shirts but that's just my own wardrobe.

I would have given it 5 stars if it were made a bit longer as it appears on the stock photo. It is very nice looking. The material on the thin side but we live in a hot climate so that is fine. Does run large in my opinion.

Would definitely size down. We ordered an xsmall for my 5'6" lb son We are able to adjust the back to fit slimmer, without looking strange, so we are keeping it.

I'm 5'5" and lb with chest mom and it still fits me without adjusting the back. Nice quality, the back is the satin like material, but has a nice texture and double layer.

Nice tailored look for the price. Will look nice with white shirt and jeans for informal, but classy look. I went by the size chart from the manufacture and not the Amazon one. Ordered the XL and got a decent fit. If you're expecting it to fit as if taylored, you need to spend the money and go to a taylor. Take your measurements with a soft measuring tape and go by the size chart when ordering and this should fit as well as anything off the rack is going to. That said, I haven't had this vest long and haven't had a chance to wear it much but I like it very much.

The material and craftsmanship both seem good and I love that the pockets are real. Last nice vest I had, the pockets were fake. Finally have a place to put my watch. The material and construction of the vest is nice. I've ordered chinese size clothing before and usually I would always need to order a size up for my husband and in womens 2 sizes up to get the American size.

I'm not sure was the 3XL is about, but it is a nice vest. Just beware of the sizing. Only 4 left in stock - order soon. This vest is classy as hell! I really like how it fits, and it was way cheaper than the one I almost bought at Express I was never going to pay bucks for a dress vest, so I'm glad I found this. I'm about six feet tall and weigh about pounds. I'm a relatively lanky dude, with a 32 inch waist, and the US Small fit me perfectly!

Underneath the waistcoat, I’d go for an oxford shirt or, for a retro finish, a grandad collar. The main thing to note here is, if the shirt is plain, the waistcoat can have some print but if it’s a printed shirt, keep the waistcoat . The most obvious pairing for a waistcoat is a classic collared shirt, which is certainly a good choice for the office. If you want to keep your look more casual, then a grandad or mandarin collar will give your waistcoat a contemporary twist.
